Excerpt

“I…” I didn’t even know. I couldn’t explain what I didn’t know. “Ask me about Jake in a different way.”
“There is no other way.”
“You know there is! Ask it in a different way.” I shoved up to my feet. This was the fight here.
I was sick of the killing.
I could not handle one more body, especially not someone I knew.
My chest heaved. “Ask it in a different way.”
I liked Jake. I was hurt by what he said, but he wasn’t on my list anymore.
I frowned. “What happened with Cavers?”
“None of your business!” he erupted, his hands flying in the air, but he was moving farther away from me. His back hit the wall, and he let me see him, how haunted he was, how stricken. He let it all out for me to see and read, though I wasn’t sure he knew it. “I don’t run my decisions through some pussy I like plowing.”
Okay, now I was mad.
“Take that back,” I said quietly.
He swore, low and long. Then he moved, flipping a chair into the wall. It impaled there, and the wall held it. It looked like an abstract piece of art.
“Take it back!” I clipped out, folding my arms over my chest.
He looked away.
I didn’t know what was going on here, but fuck him if he didn’t take back calling me pussy he liked to plow.
I screamed, “Take it back!”
“No!” He was across the room and in my face in the next second. I braced myself, but he didn’t touch me.
He stopped just short of it, his breath in my cheek, his eyes taking me in, scanning my face.
He was panicking.
I saw it now, lurking there.
Good! That filled me with satisfaction.
My chest started pounding.
No, that was my heart.
It was thumping in my chest, getting stronger, faster—a steady and powerful beat now. I could feel it all the way to my toes—in my fingers, my neck. His eyes lingered on my lips.
He couldn’t look away.
Stark hunger flashed in his eyes, and he raised a hand, holding it in the air.
It curved gently, as if he wanted to touch my neck, or the side of my face.
But he didn’t move. He just held it there, a few inches from my skin.
His eyes lifted to mine. “You bitch.”
My heart still pounded, trying to reach him. “You’re a murdering asshole,” I whispered back, seething.
“What?”he sneered. “You want to fuck now? Forget you put a fucking gun to your head?”
“Don’t kill Jake.”
He pressed into me, his eyes wild, on the edge of control. “Why?” His breath was hot on me. He bent down, his eyes glittering now.
Then he found his control. He rested one hand against the wall, next to my head. The other found my hip and slid up, moving under my shirt, raising it.
God. I almost moaned.
Wetness flooded me, and I started to throb.
I wanted him.
So fucking bad.
He bent and his lips grazed over mine, my cheeks, my chin. Tingles raced through me.
Jesus.
I wanted him deep inside of me. I shifted, pressing against him, and both of us groaned from the contact.
I began moving, a slow grind, and he was quiet, grinding back.
This was different from the other times.
The terms had flipped. Roles were changing. Everything was being upended between us.

My Canary  Review . . . 
 

I absolutely adore Tijan and her ability to weave a story with so many levels.  In Canary, I knew it was a mafia book but I truly wasn't sure what it was about.  I loved the Q&A that was on her social media but it still gave me no clue what this book was about.  

 As I started to read it I was HOOKED.  I loved the way we saw everything through her eyes and were reeled into thinking the story was more about Raize and all that he does with the mafia and then as layers were added we started to see glimpses about her.  As each glimpse came to the surface I was more and more entranced with the story.  

Raize and her chemistry sizzled through out, giving that electric feeling the whole time.   There was so much depth to Raize and her that it was so easy to fall in love with them.  I loved how she also softens the hardened Raize along the way and they ended up collecting men on their side which become a pseudo family.

I also love that we get to have an appearance of Blade and Carol within in this story and also hint of the Bennett's.  Though I have to admit I would love to see Carter Reed make an appearance any time with in these standalone Mafia stories.

 Such a great story with so many layers that grabs you from the first moment till the last.  Loved it!! Can't wait for more from Tijan 

4.5 Intense Thumbs up!

There With You By Samantha Young Release Blitz (Adair Family #2) #bookreview #teaser

There With You by Samantha Young is now live!

For Regan Penhaligon, there's no better place to run to than the exclusive Ardnoch Estate in the remote Scottish Highlands. Her impulsive behavior has finally caught up with her and Regan's visit with her sister, Robyn, is an opportunity to hide from someone who has grown dangerously obsessed with her.

Determined to make amends for her mistakes, Regan plans to repair her relationship with Robyn by staying close. And when an offer of help comes from Thane Adair, Regan gratefully accepts.

Widower, Thane, needs a new nanny housekeeper for his two young children and when they bond with Regan Penhaligon, he offers her the job. But as the weeks pass and the complex American reveals who she really is, Thane struggles with his growing attraction to her.

Regan never expected to feel so intensely for Thane, but she can't deny her passion for him or her love for his children. When someone from Thane's past threatens his family, Regan wants to be his pillar of support. However, his continued inability to trust her might just destroy their chance at future happiness... and the person who drove Regan to Ardnoch might snuff out her chance for any future at all.

My There With You Review . . . 
 
I have to admit I wasn't sure what Regan was going to be like because she wasn't painted in a positive light with Here With Me.   Because of her behaviour in Here With Me everyone had already pre-judged her including me.  
 
Regan had her reasons and for all to forgive her she had a hill to climb for everyone to let her in and forgive her.  But Samantha knows how to weave a story and I was able to forgive and love Regan right away.   It started immediately with how she treated Thane's kids.  

After Here With Me, I was so curious on Thane's back story and how he was going to find love again after losing his heart.  Again Samantha weaved her words that we were able to realize that Thane deserves so much more and Regan is the perfect partner for him.  

Though between Regan's baggage and Thane's issues these two had some hurdles to go through.
 
"These Adair men . . . emotionally constipated, I tell you."
"So, what are we?  The laxative?" 
I loved the growth of Regan and how easy it was for everyone to love her.  Though her and Robyn's mother is quite the piece of work.  Every scene with her mother I wanted to slap that woman.   Thankfully her father Seth was such a sweet guy. 

Thane was such a stubborn fool at times and was pushing away his own happiness out of fear. 
 
"Or Thane."
"No, he can go fuck himself, preferably with a glove made of splinters."
Thankfully Lachlan had already figured out his issues and was able to get Thane's head out of his ass.   I absolutely adored Thane and Regan together.    And I loved how the children fell for her right away as well.    


"I can't believe you would trust this to me."
"I trust my most treasured possessions to you, Regan.  Why would I not entrust a book to you?"


The suspense that is going on parallel with Thane and Regan's journey was done well and kept me intrigued from beginning to end.  I'm not sure what Adair is up next but I will take any of them.  There is so much I can't wait for.  1) Arrochar and Mac's story 2) Eredine and Brodan's back story 4) Arran's back story
 
I freaking adore this author and this series. Can't wait for more

4.5 Adair Loving Thumbs up!

Dustin Bridge’s world is about speed. About the edge. His life has been carved by cutting corners and making moves, following impulsive decisions while weighing the facts at hand.

On the track, that has never steered him wrong.

In life, though? That’s another story.

On the cusp of greatness, the world’s up-and-coming racing star seems to be living the perfect story. A hero to his hometown. A partner to his best friend. A man poised to take the throne, to become the greatest, and to reap the rewards and attention that come along with it.

He’s been branded the track’s most eligible bachelor. And rarely does he cross a finish line without a dozen screaming, adoring women brandishing his name on glitter-covered T-shirts across their chests, just hoping he’ll break his own rules and take one of them to bed.

But he won’t. As loose as Dustin may be on the road, he’s become disciplined in life. He let love in completely—once. For one person. Hannah Judge. And she wrecked him.

And now, she’s back.

My Burn Review . . .

Shift took me a bit to get into but then I was hooked.  During Wreck, I thought it was going to smooth then BOOM things take a turn.  After I read Wreck and did the review I have to admit I started to get more and more frustrated with Hannah and how she handled things with Dustin.  I had no idea how things were going to work out with Hannah and Dustin.  

Then I shaked my head because how could I ever doubt Ginger Scott.  She always weaves the story where it needs to go for me to get completely reeled in.   

Even though Burn starts a couple of years after Wreck, it was easy for me to understand the reasons why Dustin and Hannah made their decisions.   

With Burn, it tied all the loose ends and gave us the HEA we had been chasing from the first page of Shift.

I also have to admit that a new character within in this part stole my heart.  Jorge, his kind heart and wise words captured me. 
 
Whatever you two talk about today, whatever you may feel, be sure you listen and take it in before you react.  If people's stories were only a page long, there wouldn't be books to read.  Take in the entire arc.  Understand the journey.  It will be worth it, I swear.

 I know this series is over but there is something about Jorge that I hope Ginger believes Jorge deserves his HEA as well and can be some sort of spin off maybe.

Dustin and Hannah had their ups and downs and during that journey I had some frustrations but I was happy with how it all ended.  Dustin was such a sweetheart and I always root for the underdog.  Thankfully that paid off.   I adore Ginger Scott and this was another good series.

3.5 Dustin deserves his HEA thumbs up!
